QUÉBEC, July 26, 2017 /CNW Telbec/ - The Société des traversiers du Québec (STQ) would like to inform its clients that the barge Mecatina II is experiencing delays in her dry dock at the L'Isle-aux-Coudres shipyard. She will be back in service one week later than expected and therefore will resume her cargo transportation between Harrington Harbour and Chevery Monday, August 14, 2017.
Please note that the current service supplied by the Polaris barge and tug will continue until the MV Mécatina II is back in Chevery.
Also note that the dry dock is progressing well and that it would not have been possible to foresee the additional work required on the barge before her dry dock.
The STQ wishes to apologize for the inconvenience that this may cause and thanks the population for their understanding and cooperation.
